Excerpt: For every one person looking for a crazy, pimped out big-screen, there are four others looking for a no-frills boob tube. Sony straddled that line with the KDL-40EX500. This 1080p powerhouse has all the motion-smoothing tech of its pricey brethren, but delivers it in a basic, financial-aid friendly package.
Excerpt: Sony Bravia KDL40EX500 40inch Full HD LCD TV
Pros: Picture in picture very good. Colour and picture quality excellent. Set up was easy and the manual informative. Lots of excellent features such as being able to take a picture of the screen. DVD movies play well with the 1080i and dark parts are OK
Cons: No last channel viewed button, to switch between 2 channels is not easy.
When using the stereo we had to reprogram the TV so it did not turn on when we turned the DVD player on.
PVR manager dos not automatically load the channel information, you have to scroll through each channel for this information to be down loaded
